The Pittsburgh Steelers have been hurt by numerous top players being on injured reserve in this young season.

Now, newly acquired left tackle Levi Brown could be joining those players on injured reserve. Brown injured his triceps in warmups leading up to the start of the Steelers vs. New York Jets game at MetLife Stadium.

Brown will not play in the game, and his status will be determined in the coming days. But right now, it doesn’t look good for Brown.

He torn his right triceps and missed all of the 2012 season with the Arizona Cardinals. At this time, it is not clear if this is the same injury that Brown suffered last season.

Mike Adams had to take Brown’s spot in the starting lineup. And this was going to be Brown’s Steelers debut after last week’s bye.

He was acquired by the Steelers from the Cardinals on October 2nd, 2013 for a conditional late round draft pick.
